Chuck Sully will be the featured reader in the Dickinson Poetry Series on Wednesday, November 14, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. After his reading, there will be an open mic for other poets to read. New poets and listeners are welcome.
Chuck began to write poetry when he was 15, and the love of poetry has continued to inform his work. Two other passions are reflected in his writing: sailing and baking bread. Sailing represents a way of life for him. He has traveled 44,000 miles on the water. Catch him selling his bread at some of the farmers’ markets in Door County, and you may get him to recite a poem or two. He has published a book of poems.
Born in Illinois, Chuck was introduced to Door County by his grandparents when he was 7 and lived with them in Jacksonport during the summer months. Later he settled in Sister Bay for 28 years. His bread company, Crusty Uprising, is based in Algoma.
